Shinpachi goes to treat everyone with the reward money he got, Kimigiku is the host for the night. Shinpachi mentions how Kaoru looked similar to Chizuru and they decide to dress her up.

Thoughts: I feel like we’re getting closer to uncovering the truth about Chizuru and all the mystery stuff, I knew that we would be seeing Kaoru again! It looks like she’s a rebel and a enemy of the Shinsengumi, who is Kaoru really? and why does she look like Chizuru? there’s a possibility she’s working with Kazama~
Osen is also getting off that “enemy of the Shinsengumi” vibe, she seems to know who Chizuru really is and givies off the evil stare when she saw the sword but it doesn’t look like she’s with Kazama.
Yay finally Chizuru dresses up as a girl ^_^ she looked so adorable when she dressed up xD I think the red lipstick doesn’t match her, it should be a lighter shade of pink or even none at all, she looks better with being natural looking face.
There was also a mention that Itou’s been gathering comrades, you know what I’m thinking? hes gonna start a rebel within the headquarters or something. Overall there’s not really much to say, nothing major happened yet, it was just another very slow episode~
I’m really excited to watch the next episode :D because Kazama is back! ^.^
